About SAI Platform
The Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform (SAI Platform) facilitates knowledge-sharing and best practice between stakeholders throughout the food and drink value chain that support the development and implementation of sustainable agriculture practices. Established in 2002 by Danone, Nestlé and Unilever as a non-profit organisation, SAI Platform today has over 80 members, representing the entire food and drink value chain: farmers’ cooperatives, manufacturers, processors, and retailers. Members collaborate at a pre-competitive level.
Our key focus is on collaboration and developing practical tools which enable food and drink companies to source their agricultural raw materials in a more sustainable way. One of them is the Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA) programme, developed to help produce, sell and source sustainably grown agricultural products. It has already been implemented for 39 arable commodities in 32 countries by 32 companies at tens of thousands of farms.
In 2017, the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform will hold its Conference in China, with its members from across the global agricultural community as well as local stakeholders showcasing their learnings, facilitating dialogue and fostering collaborative action on shared challenges.
